off, nailed it up on my garage wall so then i could always remember the different ways i could use it. the little giant helped me paint my kitchen. i was able to angle the ladder on the stairs and i was able to climb up there. i felt sturdy and steady and i was able to paint the corners and the top and the ceiling without a problem. the little giant ladder has some of the most demanding customers in the world. all branches of our u.s. military have purchased and are using the little giant ladder systems in a wide variety of applications. one of the applications we use it is at the lnch pad. in order to get the little giant ladder down to the place where we actually are going to use it, it's got to go through some very small confined spaces. so we get it down into the module and then actually fold it out to its full size. the little giant ladder is so versatile that it basically accommodated all of our unusual tasks. little giant ladders are very durable. they're dependable, a very rigid ladder. i've got some pretty big operators and then you add all their gear and you're look at about

of us if we want to continue to live on it? >> for wendell berry, the defense of the earth is a mission that admits no compromise. this quiet and modest man who lives and works far from the center of power on a farm in kentucky where his family has lived for 200 years has become an outspoken, even angry advocate for a revolution in our treatment of the land. >> "a warning to my readers." do not think me gentle because i speak in praise of gentleness, or elegant because i honor the grace that keeps this world. i am a man crude as any, gross of speech, intolerant, stubborn, angry, full of fits and furies. that i may have spoken well at times, is not natural. a wonder is what it is. >> berry rarely gives television interviews, but recently, here at st. catharine college, near louisville, he agreed to sit down with me to read some of his work and talk about his passions. >> good morning, everyone. my name is -- >> it was a special occasion, from far and wide, friends and followers of berry gathered in the louisville area to celebrate the 35th anniversary of his landmark work, "the unsettlin

for having us here. >> thank you so much. >> you have so much to do here at home on the political issues that concern you, why did you take on the fukushima nuclear plant? >> well, you know, the truth is what's going on in fukushima really should be in the headlines of newspapers all over the world. this is, regrettably, an issue that puts all of us at risk. i mean, this is sort of writ very large what the dangers of nuclear power >> and particularly that tepco, tokyo electric power company, is getting ready to remove 1,500 spent fuel rods, which are in a very delicate position. and this has really never been tried, what they're attempting to do. so, we came to town to deliver a letter that was signed by organizations and people from 16 different countries and petitions, over 150,000 petitions, to the united nations calling for independent oversight and access to accurate information about what's going on there. >> and if this removal of the fuel rods that are teetering in an unstable building 100 feet up in the air, some 1,500 of these fuel rods, they hold the radioactive fallout equiva

, the drones they use are not always so selective and often kill innocent civilians, including children. last tuesday, for the first time, drone attack victims testified at a briefing for members of congress. five members showed up. the briefing coincided with the release of a new documentary, "unmanned: america's drone wars," the latest from brave new films, produced and directed by robert greenwald. it tells the story of civilians who have lost their lives to drones and includes the testimony of others. among them, brandon bryant, a former american drone operator who carried out attacks by remote control from a military base in new mexico. >> getting into the drone program was weird. the introduction is like, "this is what we do, we kill people and break things. that is what our job is." and depending on atmospherics, if it was a completely clear day, you'd definitely get a good picture. and depending on how close you were you could probably read the license plate on someone's car. we can see something as simple as people playing a soccer game. we can see individual players, and we can even

people in that area use to settle their disputes. >> this is simply indiscriminate bombing! there are so many women and children killed. >> at one stage i came upon a young boy, tariq aziz. when i was talking to tariq, one of the first things that he did was he handed me his cousin's student id card. and as i looked at it i looked back at tariq and i noticed he was crying. he started to tell me the story of his cousin who had been killed from a drone strike. he'd come to the jirga primarily to inform us a little bit more about what had happened to his cousin to people in his local village and find out how to stop the killing. we sat together all day. we ate together at lunch time. we laughed together. we became friends. tariq was extremely intelligent and funny to be around. he had a nice sense of humor. he was fascinated by photography and intrigued by western music, mentioning artists and one that sprang to mind was lady gaga. he started to talk about drone strikes in his village, how he was unable to sleep at night.só& he was scared he was worried about his family, his friends. tariq

're your retirement company. >> welcome. a very wise teacher once told us, "if you want to change the world, change the metaphor." then he gave us some of his favorite examples. you think of language differently, he said, if you think of "words pregnant with celestial fire" or "words that weep and tears that speak." of course, the heart doesn't physically separate into pieces when we lose someone we love, but "a broken heart" conveys the depth of loss. and if i say you are the "apple of my eye," you know how special you are in my sight. in other words, metaphors cleanse the lens of perception and give us a fresh take on reality. in other words. recently i read a book and saw a film that opened my eyes to see differently the crisis of our times, and the metaphor used by both was, believe it or not, zombies. you heard me right, zombies. more on the film later, but this is the book, "zombie politics and culture in the age of casino capitalism." talk about "connecting the dots." read this, and the headlines of the day will, i think, arrange themselves differently in your head, threading togethe
